The professor walked into the classroom promptly at 1 PM, the beginning of class.Â As he walked across the room to a front row seat on the far end of the classroom, he said, “Mr. Price, I believe you have problem to show us.”
Â The previous class, he had asked for volunteers to work problem 1.Â I had thought I could work out the solution, but as I went through my notes and tried to think through it on the board, I realized that I needed more time.Â The professor had given me two more days to work on it.
Â I had a solution worked out the previous night.Â I had the proof figured out to several line by line statements.Â I began to present my proof.Â There were several parts where students had questions.Â Â For 70 minutes I was there working the problem, answering the questions, explaining and re-explaining.Â I did not feel nervous.Â I did not freeze up.Â I was completely focused on the problem, explaining, and answering the questions.Â It was very fun!Â It was very draining.Â But I think I really would like to teach math more.Â
Both a fellow student and the professor said I had done a good job.
